Brewerytown runs approximately between the Schuylkill River’s eastern bank and 25th Street, bounded by Cecil B. Moore Avenue to the north and Parrish Street to the south. Brewerytown got its name because of the numerous breweries that were located along the Schuylkill during the late 19th century and early 20th century. It is now primarily a residential neighborhood, with a growing and active commercial sector along Girard Avenue.
The earliest indications of this legacy can be seen on maps from the 1860s, which list several minor German brewers and distillation facilities in this region. Proximity to the river and nearby farmland allowed these establishments to flourish, and as demands increased, so did development in Brewerytown. By the early 20th century it was a thriving German settlement. Much of the expansion into the early 20th century was handled by architect Otto Wolf, who oversaw the construction of over 60 buildings in the area, bringing a distinct German texture to the houses, saloons, and breweries of the area. Some of his buildings are still standing, including the Bergdoll Brewing complex, and F.A. Poth Brewing. Jefferson Street Grounds, the first home of the Philadelphia Athletics major league baseball team and site of the first ever Major League Baseball game, is located at 27th and Jefferson Streets in the neighborhood. It was also home to famed Columbia Park.
At its peak, 700 breweries operated across Philadelphia, several in a ten-block area of Brewerytown. Unfortunately, with the collapse of local industry later in the 20th century, originally started by the implementation of Prohibition in the United States, and beer production moving primarily to the Midwest, every single brewer had vanished by 1987. The industry has slowly returned to the city, but at nowhere near the capacity of its heyday. As of 2016, the only active brewery in Brewerytown is Crime & Punishment Brewing, which opened in 2015.
Strawberry Mansion’s rich culture and history can be attributed to its diverse heritage and the talented and dedicated residents who have called the neighborhood home. The name of the Strawberry Mansion neighborhood comes from the large Georgian mansion in nearby East Fairmount Park. The area is home to other prominent historic landmarks including the Strawberry Mansion Bridge, John Coltrane House, and the Henry O. Tanner House, among many others.
In the late 1880’s, the Strawberry Mansion area developed as a working-class, residential neighborhood. It became well known for its proximity to Fairmount Park as well as the Woodside Amusement Park, the Philadelphia Zoo, Smith Playground, and Shibe Park. Philadelphia residents accessed these nearby attractions on the trolley, which connected Strawberry Mansion with West Fairmount Park via the Strawberry Mansion Bridge, built in 1879. Before 1950, Strawberry Mansion was predominantly Jewish.
Within a generation, discriminatory government policies and housing practices transformed Strawberry Mansion into a predominantly African-American community. Wealthier Jewish residents left the neighborhood for the suburbs in the wave of white flight during the 1950’s and 1960’s. Their vacated rowhomes were sold to working-class African Americans who had migrated in large numbers from the rural South to seek refuge from racial violence and to find work in the city’s factories. In the early-to-mid 20th century, several notable figures lived and worked in Strawberry Mansion, including Larry Fine of the Three Stooges, painter and artist Henry O. Tanner, saxophonist John Coltrane, and educator and diplomat Ebenezer Don Carlos Bassett.
